  1. I used to have a large number of books as well. However, I find myself reducing the number of texts I keep on hand every year. Many times the books were good enough to read one time but not a second. It’s these texts I’ve started to donate or give away over time. There are just a few books that I know I’ll go back and read again (The Fountainhead, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Fear and Loathing, etcetera) that I keep on hand.

    Another option is audiobooks. I’ve been an addicted Audible user for years now. It’s nice to have a library of a few hundred books that take up no room whatsoever.

    I think I’m one of the few that wishes eBooks would take off. I’d love to pay 1/2 price for an eBook version of a text that I could download on demand.

    To me, the personal library as a stack of books taking up room in my house has jumped the big fish with sharp teeth. Besides, how would I fit all of them in my retirement AirStream?
